The Strategic Advantage of Qlik in Higher Education


In the halls of UK higher education, a quiet revolution is underway. Data governance, management and analytics is reshaping the landscape, offering unprecedented insights into the very fabric of institutional success.  

As UK institutions strive for excellence in a highly-competitive sector, the ability to maintain and improve data quality while easily combining and distributing that data for analysis, is no longer a luxury but a necessity.  

In this blog we explore how Ometis can help educators and administrators unlock the full potential of their data, drive efficiency, innovation and educational outcomes that resonate with the demands of a modern, data-driven world. 

Data Governance and Quality Data 

Organisations are tasked with capturing vast amounts of data, both internally and externally, to maximise the data's value, manage associated risks and minimise management costs. That’s why data governance is such a important piece of the puzzle. Ometis provides a comprehensive approach to data governance, empowering users through a collaborative governance methodology. We review the entire process from the moment data is discovered and cleansed to the point where it is visualised. 

Maintaining and Managing Data 

Managing data across an institution includes a wide array of tasks, policies, procedures and practices. That’s why data management is key, as it defines how to gather, store, access and update data. A lack of data management can mean incompatible silos, inconsistent data sets and data quality issues that prevent organisation’s from making the right decisions.

Through the Qlik platform, Ometis enables universities to tap into a wealth of data concerning student behaviours, registrations and institutional operations. With Qlik, educational institutions can improve tracking and reporting on student registrations, examination performance and adjust operations to market changes and resource requirements​​.

This leads to more efficient registration service processes and supports essential estate management analysis, crucial for budget-conscious universities​.
